University of Mumbai

I visited the University of Mumbai in the summers of 2011 and 2013 to teach graduate courses intended to develop the ‘Italian Cinemas/Italian Histories’ project. See my blog based on the two courses for essays on films and themes.

My sincere thanks are due to my hosts at Mumbai: Dr. Vidya Vencatesan and Dr. Roberto Bertilaccio of the Dept. of French, and Dr. Shobha Ghosh of the Dept. of English. I also owe thanks to the Dept. of Civics and Politics for allowing the use of their wonderful lecture hall. Finally, I acknowledge with gratitude the Italian Embassy Cultural Centre in New Delhi and its director Dottoressa Angela Trezza, as well as the Consulate General of Italy in Mumbai for making my visits possible. My gratitude is due to Profs Sridhar Rajeswaran and Nilufer Barucha for organising an academic tour in Gujurat.
